Craft Fair Frames

So I've been busy making some new frames this year.  I've decided to break down my posts and spread them out since there's a lot to share...  I've even created some new ones using new images, but I'll wait to post them once the images are released.

Until then, I'll be sharing some of our favorite images that were used on these press board frames.  These unfinished frames were purchased from Ben Franklin and covered with washi paper.  At this point, I have so much washi, I can't remember where I got this one from.  I'm guessing it was from Japan since it's pastel green and most of the ones I picked up in Japan were pastel.

While on one of many trips home in November, I took a bunch of images with me that were enlarged on the computer.  This makes a nice size for the frame.  On my down time, I colored in the images so that all I had to do was cut them out when I got home.

Since Katsura looks like he is balancing, I felt like I needed to add in something for him to stand on.  I opted to free hand cut the "hill" out of gold cardstock and then used pop dots to adhere him to the frame.  I think the "hill" was just the added touch needed to accent the boy without competing with the boy or the washi background.  Here's a closer look at Katsura...

Thanks for stopping by!  Can you believe its Wednesday?   See you soon with another frame to share.

The hillside is a great addition to the washi paper you selected for this frame. It looks like ripples on the water from pulling the fish out of the lake! Gorgeous frame!

Beautiful frame Jenny! I love how you color contrasted Katsura to the washi paper and by adding the gold it looks like he's on land running next to the ocean. Great idea!
